long has been considered generous because new york's economy and demographic contours different from those the rest of the country. there is a country growing more diverse and independent as income and inequality sigh rockets, more americans find themselves working low wage service jobs, looking more and more like new york. many of the political problems we are grappling with, immigration, minimum wage, what the repost-recession economy should look like, policy, policing, are issues at the center of new york's mayoral race. my great pleasure to have with me four of the democratic candidates for mayor of the new york city, bill de blasio. sal albanese, former city councilman. bill thompson, former new york comptroller and nominee for mayor in 2009. john liu, current city comptroller. we reached out to christine quinn who is also running but could not join us today. gentlemen, thank you very much for being here. >> thank you. >> this trial, i think, is -- really explosive. and i thinks that really changed the contours the politics on this issue. i'm curious what your feeling is about w
of a complex, global economy. it's just one reason over 75% of our mutual funds beat their 10-year lipper average. t. rowe price. invest with confidence. requesa prospectus or summary prospectus with investment information, risks, fees and expenses to read and consider carefully before investing. ...amelia... neil and buzz: for teaching us that you can't create the future... by clinging to the past. and with that: you're history. instead of looking behind... delta is looking beyond. 80 thousand of us investing billions... in everything from the best experiences below... to the finest comforts above. we're not simply saluting history... we're making it. >> at 22 minutes past the hour, i'm arthel neville with your fox news mine. italian president napolitano has reached out to the leader of italy's democratic party to try to form a new italian government. the eurozone's third largest economy has been politically deadlocked since no party won last month's general election. >>> president obama is in jordan, the final stop on his four-day visit to the middle east for talks with king abdullah wi
contributes to the local economy, $2.3 billion. so, the effect of the furloughs, as a result of sequestration, how do you expect that to play out? >> well, i can tell you that it's impacting my friends, my neighbors, it's impacting families throughout southern illinois. you're looking at people giving up 20% of their pay, and that's going to have a profound impact on the local economy. you know, those people who aren't getting a full week's pay for a full week's work won't be buying new cars. they certainly won't be buying new houses. and they won't be going down and getting that widescreen tv, or maybe going out to eat. >> right. >> and so, that's going to have a ripple effect throughout the economy. i'd like to point out, too, it's not just scott air force base. you know, we have federal prisons, and -- who are facing furloughs. that's a profound impact not only on the economy but also on the safety of those other prison employees. we have the shawnee national forest, the largest national forest in illinois, very significant impact. >> yeah. well -- >> we're losing three air control towers.
growth but the duty is even low-skilled immigrants are good for this economy. they are benefiting not just people like me or people working in washington d.c. because they know their lawn, watched their children but this is not the zero sum game and the data is clear it is a no-brainer. john: of the immigrant pains my house we are richer? >> yes. because he is cheaper e makes construction and prices lower for all of us. john: adits minder standing everything cost less and we get richer. >> to focus on the gdp if we would provide amnesty to 12 million in legal immigrants yes a total sum of products manufactured would grow. >> the more people in the bigger it gets but it is abstract but it doesn't mean anything for the public because if you find a the government with low-end jobs gdp is rising but opportunities for meaningful growth are eroding. john: what would you do with the 12 million who are here? >> you remove them as identified by law and allow them to leave voluntarily. if we have the incentives in place they would self to port with attrition john: make it so hard they leav
or the economy. this is something that will come up again with the debt ceiling fight this summer. but if you look at what the senate just passed, this is as christina said, they want to raise taxes. >> guys, let's switch to gun control here. christina, there's mention of the push for the gun control measures. a new gun control law was signed into law described as tough but does not ban semiautomatic assault weapons. here's the governor today. >> i get the feeling right now around assault weapons is that it's hard to define what assault weapons is, whether the ten-year ban, the federal ban made a difference. >> so colorado can't pass a ban on semiautomatic assault weapons. do you take that as a sign it's not going to pass in any state? >> well, it's really hard to know. every state is different. but there is a huge question here. lawmakers feel a lot of pressure from gun lobbyists, gun rights groups and this is why the effort is so interesting. he says he's going to spend $12 million to really look at senators that might be persuadable, particularly those with strong gun rights cultures in th
-through with the israelis and a lot of interesting developments on the growing economy here, the technology sector. we will have jeff goldberg and host of "meet the press" in the united states, david gregory and "meet the press" from here, dana weiss. we have a pretty jam-packed show. >> wonderful. andrea mitchell, thanks very much. >>> the white house is work, on shifting over side of its lethal drone program from the cia to the military. according to the "the wall street journal." the move would make the controversial program subject to international law. strikes would be undertaken with the consent of host governments, while many in washington believe the program will be more effective under the cia, the proposal reflects a growing consensus it needs to be on legal, sturdier footing. yesterday the senate kicked off hearings. senators on both sides expressed concerns over privacy. some members are mulling possible federal regulations. the faa estimates 30,000 drones could be flying in the u.s. skies in the next 20 years and richard haass is shaking his head. it's impossible to consider. >> i think t
to shoot straight and say, it's not as if our government's going to collapse tomorrow or the economy is going to collapse tomorrow if we do nothing. but it's time to quit kicking the can down the road. you know, the folks on the other side of the aisle have talked about a balanced approach. but there's nothing balanced about a budget that doesn't balance. frankly the republican proposal is a relatively modest one. we grow government by 3.5% a year over the next ten years and balance the budget to, you know, put our kids and grand kids in a better position. >> obviously a big issue is going to be medicare. congressman cartwright, i want to get you to respond to something that senator corker says he wants president obama to do. here's what he said over the weekend. >> when the president uses his bully pulpit to explain to the american people that families are only paying one-third of the cost of medicare, we will know that we've begun the process of trying to solve this problem. i hope that happens as soon as he gets back from israel. >> congressman cartwright, i know there's a lot of
the sequester for the moment maybe don't do anything. the economy looks like it's picking up a little steam. and that might be just what we need. you know, in terms of the ryan budget, it took a public drubbing in the election. we, we already forgotten about november? when the republicans ran on the ryan budget. if they want to keep revisiting that, that's their choice. but why are we talking about this? we just find out that medicaid and medicare deliver health care cheaper than anything else? and they want to eviscerate that? it makes utterly no sense at all to me, anyway. >> howard, these seem to be sort of political manifestos, more than fiscal proposals. especially the ryan budget, over 40% of its savings are based on a repeal of obama care. which ain't going to happen any time soon. >> i agree, they are political. they aren't even opening negotiating positions, sometimes people set out markers that are designed to begin negotiations. these are political documents and they're speaking to their own parties. and the democrats have already said, look, you want to run on the ryan budget ag
the porn industry. it's worth about a billion dollars overall to the economy, just in southern california. well we are on the subject of sex in addition to the so-called vice taxes, some states are actually putting -- imposing taxes. in illinois requiring the strip club operators to impose a $3 charge for their customers the tax is expected to raise a million dollars annually. texas has also got eight vice tax. it is a little different. a little bigger deal in texas. $5. they are getting just about ten times as much revenue as a state of illinois. nevada, the only state in the country to allow any form of prostitution to illegally. it does not collect the tax. but if it did it will reportedly earn nearly $150 million for the state in nevada. regardless of whether not you think the taxes are good or bad public policy, there is no denying that device is generating an enormous amount of what government seems to like most, revenue. the nra proposal to keep our kids safe in school is still the best solution. the "a-team" on where are the other lears. the billionaire mayor wants to ban guns
immigrants are good for this economy. they are benefitting not only high skill people like me or like all of the people working in washington, d.c. because they mow their lawn and they watch their children, but also lower skilled labors because this is not a zero sum game. the economy can expand. the data is very clear. i think it is pretty much a no brainer. >> if an immigrant paints my house somehow we are all richer because the rest of us can specialize in something else? >> yes. one of the ways because he's cheaper he makes prices much lower prices of construction much lower for all of us. >> that mahas been my understanding by this flexibility of a labor market everything costs less we can get richer. >> what you are focusing on is the gross domestic product for example if we were to provide grants and amnesty to 12 million illegal aliens the gdp tote at that time total sum of all good and products would grow. >> they would stop hiding and report more income. >> that is an abstract method. it doesn't mean anything. it means squat for "john q" public. with the holy skilled low end job
and other nations, think it is too soon to suggest that. it is the banking system the size of this economy, you talk about the fact that large percentage of the deposit are outside attempting to trick the nation and the bank in the unique way. i sure hope they backpedal on insurance deposits, that would provide a little bit of stability and i hope they suggest this is not something we're looking to do broadly across the euro zone nations. melissa: do you think they will do that, or do you think the opposite, that other people follow suit? this is really unprecedented. they're basically skimming people's bank accounts. >> i agree with both of you, which is always a good thing to do. the fact is they will try to reassure people this is a one off thing. they have rung the spell. now people know especially larger depositors know if they're in italy or spain they could be hit by this. the one thing we have not mentioned is russia. love those large deposits are from russians. including those who had taken the money. the fact they're taking a haircut is not anything people want to cry tears over,
. the entire economy of this city is based in gaming, 33,000 people work in the industry. here at the golden nugget atlantic city casino, they have a golden nugget. look at that. they have a hotel, cay casino, d marina in the heart of new jersey. hear from the general manager at the bottom of the hour, and i sit down with a blackjack dealer and learn for the first time how to play blackjack. i never played it in the casino before, and you'll never guess how i did. it's not just gambling, but the biggest trends in alcohol these days, bourbon, plus, tobacco, porn, reality tv, and how your smart phone is a vice. we have a sinful hour ahead capping it off with how you at home as an investor can make money on it all. first tonight, our top story. obamacare's latest surprise is a new fee to hit employers. douglas holtz-eakin, president of the and former cbo director. great to talk to you. i was shocked to hear about the fee, $63, nobody knew it was coming, $63 per eployee, so for a company like boeing, that's $10 million just for the fee alone. what is it for, and why didn't we hear about this bef
-strapped island of cyprus is now talking about nationalizing its country's pensions to save the struggling economy there. so he they couldn't seize the bank accounts, it's under consideration, now they're going to seize your pension. and we'll see how private money keeps coming up to attempts to head off disaster and are people too quick to dismiss the notion this could happen in the united states? growing anger for veterans after this memorial that celebrates the deaths of american troops in vietnam. this is put up by the enemy, appears in a popular reality show in a way that is very celebratory. apparently they feel, the news organization apparently on the wrong side of this fight. bob beckel was one of those who is upset by the decision to use this as a prop in a television show and he will join us live to explain why he and many others think this network went way over the line. >> i am so outraged by this, cbs is idiotic, stupid and don't blame it on young producers, it had to go through somebody at the executive branch of cbs and cbs can't do better than that to have people go to a memorial w
in there. >> i think elected officials need to be honest about the real challenge our economy is facing. we have a debt challenge. we have a congress that is pretty disfupgsal and governing by crisis after crisis after crisis. no attempt to make solutions. no attempt to spur growth in the economy. and we're spending our time focusing on these issues which have very real impacts for many people around the country. but if we were to focus on job security, economic growth, many of the social issues would take care of themselves. >> it is an economic issue for women and families. >> i'm scared it's going to remain a dominant issue because of other issues that have fallen to the wayside. immigration in 2010 was the the celeb for the tea party, for the right wing. everybody is on board. we're battling out the details. we're looking at gay marriage. we're seeing a trend of acceptance for gay marriage. >> here's what i don't understand. the republican party is about individual responsibility, smaller government, letting the person figure out for their own idea what they should do. millions of peopl
't want the economy to slow down. it is a huge burden on consumers and businesses. we have the battle. lou: part of the fundamentals is a little place called cyprus related to another little place called greece, related to somethg much bigger. the eurozone -- these people have made a horrible misjudgment. the european central bank and the international monetary fund. is it recoverable? >> well, they have their back against the wall. they don't have printing press like we do. e germans don't like the russians and all of this stuff. so you have to see that the federal reserve by pushing short and long-term rates, two to three percentage points, we have basically confiscated this in the last for five years. we just did in a less obvious way. >> a less obvious way. what is pretty obvious now is you have this with the bond market they are sitting her taking every element. predicting the end of the world. atome point, i am not ready for the end of the financial world as we know it. are you? >> we have had bubble bursts since the late '90s. i used to say that the baby boomers will drive the marke
